QuicK aNd easY OrnaMenTs

Are ya in a pinch for a handmade gift for your neighbors or friends?  Looking for an easy craft for the kids?  Or perhaps you wanna make something handmade for yourself.  If so, I've got the craft for you.

All you need is a bit of this...

Some of these...

MiX, rOll, CuT and let dRy.  Then decorate with some of this...

Add a little ribbon...

And voila...AppleY, ciNNomOny, sMeLLy oRnamEnTs.
(Remember making these together Kel?  Almost forever ago. I still have mine AND they still smell!  Thanks for the fun idea.)

And did I mention...CheaP, cHeap, CheaP.  Tie them to your packages to add a little sPiCe :)

Or hang them on the tree.  Let them smell up your house.

I made a few of these with my activity days girls today, they were a hit. It's a great craft to do with the kids quick and easy.

Here's the recipe if you're interested:

1 cup Cinnamon
1 cup Apple Sauce
1 Tbs White Glue

Mix all ingredients until smooth.  Roll dough with rolling pin (use a piece of wax paper on top of the dough if sticky) to 1/4 inch thickness.  Cut with cookie cutters.  Using a straw, make a small hole in ornament.  Place on cookie sheet and let dry 24-48 hours (you can also bake them at 150 degrees for one hour...mine turned out better just letting them air dry).  Decorate with paint, candies, etc.  And you're finished.  Easy peasy.
